A man is dead after he rolled his truck while navigating the on ramp to Highway 1 from 152 Street.

On Thursday at about 1:30, the man was heading toward the highway when the pickup he was in rolled off the road.

He was transferred to Royal Columbian Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police said Friday drugs or alcohol were not believed to be factors and that it's too soon to say if speed was involved in the accident.

Traffic was backed up for two and a half hours while accident reconstruction teams tried to make sense of what occurred.

On Friday, police could not reveal any more details about the man.

More as it becomes known.
